Description Henning 2013-08-06 05:55:22 UTC

Sorry I don´t know how to mark this as a Feature request - This is not a bug.

I need to switch constantly between the iOS 6 and 7 SDK and have to download the corresponding updates every time again with a slow connection. Is there a possibility to easily switch between Versions instead of switching the channels and download them all over again?

If not I hereby request something like this.

This also could help speed up to pin point errors if they happen in one monotouch version but not the other.

Thank you very much!

It's more likely that we'd allow having multiple XA/XI versions installed.

That would be the better solution! Thanks for your response!

Implemented. We keep the last 7 days of downloads in the cache folder, and use them when switching channels.
